The Kachemak Heritage Land Trust held a meeting at the Homer Senior Center to discuss getting more trails in Homer. Kenton Bloom of KHLT said a 1985 trails plan was shelved because the city didn’t back it out of fears of legal liability. Bloom said one step to speed up the process is mapping existing trails such as homesteader trails with the goal of getting them platted.

“We already have trails here, but few of them have legitimacy,” Bloom said.
